Hot July 4th Sunday
It's sweltering in Washington DC Metro today. Not a cloud in the sky. I went to the farmer's market and picked up some amazing veggies for dinner, and some enormous blackberries.
Then, I went scouting for story material in Rosslyn VA. It is right at the Key Bridge (Francis Scott Key) heading into Georgetown or the Roosevelt Bridge, all along the Potomac River. Even though it is morning, many people are already pitching their spots for the fireworks. Can you imagine sitting in the sun all day long just for a few minutes of fireworks.
There are more porto-johns lined up than I have ever seen. Anyway, here are some pictures.
"It’s a hot Sunday in July and I am taking a walk through Rosslyn. I want to scout the places where things will start happening in the fall. For instance, the Artisphere will open in October. I will be talking about some upcoming jazz festivals too. The Spectrum Theater is right across the alleyway.
Today, I am enjoying some quiet spots where you can always find a place to sit in the shade. I am here with work by Nancy Holt, the environmental sculptress from Massachusetts. She must be about 70 years old now."
